yeah it counts... id like to see an auto race a stick... same everything.. just to see. You throw that auto in 1st and mash it i think youd be able to keep up with a stick pretty well...

[QUOTE=DiabloBlanco;324582]thats only if you dont know how to shift hahaha

Look at the towing capacity on a stick... not very high vs an auto. I have to admit its fun to drive a stick but for sheer comfort id like an auto... i commute way to much in traffic to have a stick... it would be to much shifting. Id be tired before i got to work... lol
